2SER’s entertainment wizard, Wayne Massingham is back and he’s got you covered with his reviews of the latest and greatest in film, music and television.
It’s Wayne’s 4 by 2! 4 Reviews, 2 minutes each. Here’s what he had for us this morning:
Film: Dumb Money
Dumb Money is a 2023 American biographical comedy-drama film directed by Craig Gillespie in which it recounts the whirlwind that was the GameStop short squeeze in 2021 when people flocked to buy stocks in the US video game store. Keith Gill is the main character in the film whose life never looks the same after doing just that. It’s a fascinating film to watch, in cinemas now.

Television: Cunk on Earth
Cunk On Earth gives viewers a tour of the world through the eyes of host Philomena Cunk (Diane Morgan) who asks hard hitting questions to qualified historians to bring audiences closer to the truth of our history as a civilisation. However it being a mockumentary it becomes clear that Philomena Cunk is taking the mickey by asking questions like “Has a mummy ever ridden a bicycle?” and “Is the Mona Lisa holding a balloon between her knees?”
Hilarious and completely off the wall, this 5 episode series is certain to please, watch it on Netflix.
Watch the trailer here.
Fingernails is a dystopic film that follows Anna and Ryan (Jesse Buckley and Jeremy Allen White) testing their true love. Their love comes at the cost of a fingernail. When Anna meets Amir (Riz Ahmed) at her new job, she starts to question her loyalty to Ryan and the scientific possibility of loving two people.
Fingernails is out now on Apple TV+. Watch the trailer here.
Album: Perennial, Woods
Woods has been around since 2004 and is one of the most underrated bands of the last two decades! They are a Brooklyn-based band with a very do-it-yourself approach to music. Jeremy Earl is the front-man of Woods and runs a record label. His high-pitched vocals paired with the indie-rock guitar and melodies makes Perennial s nice album to lie back to and let the music just wash over you. Woods recorded this eleven-song album in California.
